Introduction: What city do you live in? New to the area? What are your interests? Any fun facts you want to share?

Silver spring, md. I am new to silver spring, but not to the metro DC area. I lived in Arlington for nearly 30 years before moving to silver spring this winter. My main interest is bicycling for fun and fitness. I am a research scientist at the FDA, which some people find a "fun fact" I guess.

Why did you decide to join a bookclub?

I am an avid reader, especially of historical novels. I was in a couple of book clubs before I had children and then found it hard to continue while working full time and raising two kids. Now that they are grown and in college, I think now is a good time to begin again with a book club.

What's one of your favorite books or just a good book you read recently that you would recommend to others?

Paris by Edward Rutherford. It's rather long, so probably not a good book club book, but it was excellent. Great book for people who love historical novels, this covered from Middle Ages through modern times.


I enjoy reading, cycling, and making a positive impact on the public health through my work at the FDA.
